Is there anything more enduring (besides love and heartbreak) than denim? Jeanius is a celebration of the journey – country cousin to haute couture – the whole world wanted to go on since America made it a national obsession. Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses…France may take the credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de Nîmes = DeNim), but bright young American women took it higher! M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, along with NEW limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer. Like the faux-metal “snap” on the Eye Shadow…completely riveting.
White Jeanius: White with Silver Pearl
Diva in Distress: Mid-tone gray with silver pearl
Motorhead: Mid-tone dirty blue with copper pearl
Stovepipe Black: black with copper pearl
The design on top of these is an overspray if you couldn’t tell, and is gone within the first swatch. My favorites out of these four are Stovepipe Black (which doesn’t fit it’s description at all, its more of a gunmetal gray with silver pearl to me) and Motorhead. Diva in Distress is on the flaky side, but I can see it working with a eyeliner or cream color base of a similar color. Because of the larger size on these, they are a bit more expensive than regular shadows ($19.50 vs $14.50) as well.
